A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    I get your sarcasm there, but in the state of Florida even if you have CCP, you cannot go get drunk while packing.

    but in the state of Florida even if you have CCP, you cannot go get drunk while packing.

    1) So what sentence would the state of Florida give you for getting drunk, shooting 50+ people and then doing a death by cop? They going to revoke your CCP?
    2) You don't have to get drunk in nightclubs, especially if you're going there as the shooter and not for the shooters. A bit of alcohol may help improve accuracy but the benefit drops above a certain amount.
